1. Gabinova’s wire mesh panel gabions are produced from premium Galfan welded mesh from Germany, with a zinc coating of 95% zinc and 5% aluminium. The panel diameter is 4 mm and mesh size is 50 x 50 mm. By default, Gabinova delivers various clamps and/or a partition along with the gabions. In this way, “expanding” of the gabions is prevented and a straight gabion is guaranteed.
2. Gabions that are filled up with rubble stones require wire panels with a mesh size of 75 x 75 mm. As a result of the bigger mesh size, these panels have a larger diameter width of 4.5 mm.
3. The wire panels have a zinc coating of 350 grams/m2. This ensures a life expectancy of approximately 75 years.
4. With regard to the production of gabions, we use wire mesh panels that measure 200 x 100 cm. You can use several gabions to cover large areas. A clean end result will be guaranteed.
5. We will specifically adjust the gabion sizes for you. When entering sizes, you should stick to height, width, and length sizes in multiples of 5 of 7.5 cm. Panels with a mesh size of 50 x 50 mm and a wire width of 4 mm have an inside measure of 42 mm. The wire mesh panels of 75 x 75 mm and a wire width of 4.5 mm have an inside measure of 66 mm. After filling up the gabions with rubble stones, the length and width of the gabion will increase with approximately 2 centimeters.
6. It is advisable to place the gabions on a straight and stable surface. We recommend a foundation of broken rubble, concrete tiles, and preferrably a foundation strip of concrete. As a result of the weight of the rubble stones, a proper foundation is essential. A default gabion of 200 cm x 100 cm x 30 cm (H x W x D) contains approximately a 1000 kilos of stones. This kind of weight asks for the right surface. When using higher and narrower gabions, you can make use of scaffolding pipes to stabilise the gabions.
7. Gabinova delivers empty gabions, which will make the installation easier. After installing the gabions at the desirable location, you can fill them up with rubble stones.
8. It is recommended to fill the larger rubble stones by hand. During the filling process, you should place the flat side of the stones facing outside, after which you continue filling up the inside part. By doing so, you will create a beautiful and tight end result. If you ordered smaller rubble stones, you can easily pour the stones in the gabion by using buckets.
9. After the gabions have been filled up, you will end up with some residue. You should remove these yourself. You cannot prevent ending up with this residue; the rubble stones always contain a percentage of delicate material coming fourth from different grooves.
10. All pallets and Big Bags are intended for single use only, so these will not be returned to Gabinova (no deposit).
11. With regards to the delivery of the gabions, the delivery period is approximately 2 weeks. Before the delivery, you will be contacted by phone to inform you about the exact delivery date and time.
12. For the delivery of the gabions, including the rubble stones, we will make use of a curtain sided trailer with kooiaap (smaller forklift truck).
To stabilise the gabions, we can deliver scaffolding pipes.
We have different pipe sizes (100, 200, and 300 cm) in stock.
The default mesh size of your gabions is 50 x 50 mm and these
are manufactured by 4 mm Galfan zinc steel wire.
The life expectancy of this steel wire is 3 times
longer than regular galvanised material.
The mesh size is 50 x 50 mm, which provides for a cleaner
end result than meshwork with a size of 10 or 15 cm.
These gabions are also suitable to be filled
up with smaller rubble stones. Additionally, we offer Galfan
mesh wire panels with a mesh size of 75 x 75 mm and a wire size of
4.5 mm. You can fill up these gabions with bigger rubble stones.
The gabions are exclusively made for each customer and mounted
with firm C-rings that are attached to each corner and after that,
every 15 cm. In this way, we can manufacture robust and sustainable gabions.
Along with your delivery of the gabions, you will receive spacers
that should be placed inside the gabion to ensure everything will
be kept tightly together. In this way, “expansion” and bending of
the gabion will be prevented. Our gabions will not be provided with
so called spirals because these may disorganise the tight proportions of the gabions.
In the example picture, you will see a gabion with hooks and a
scaffolding tube already installed. When the gabions are filled up
with rubble stones, the scaffolding tubes will no longer be visible.
